Gentle manliness and Roger are synonymous terms. All the characteristics of true
manhood are his. Dependable, conscientious, friendly and steadfast, yet withal he
finds time for recreation and leisure and even for harmless pranks which his dignity
denies. See him at his books, a better than average student; or meet him on the cam-
pus an interesting and clever talker; and surprise him at a midnight prank, a wary
and original artiste; then sit beside him in church, a devout and sincere Christian.
Loyal and diligent, Roger is ready to help at any task. His ability and dependability
have made him a leader among his fellows, and of course he has constantly been
called upon to play a prominent part in school activities. As he leaves us we predict
for him all the success that is due a genuine Christian gentleman. May God bless

"Not all things small are insignificant." So we have found that Alice has made
a place for herself at E. N. C. quite beyond the promise of her size. There is a certain
delightful contradiction about Alice. She is now twinkling with merriment, now
menacing with rebuke. Professionally she is authoritative; privately, she is gracious.
Alice differs from the usual college graduate in one unique respect — she has already
"made a name for herself." By patient insistence, she broke down the fortress of
habit and prevailed upon her fellow-students to call her no longer Carrie, but Alice!
Achievement is a very significant word in respect to Alice. Carrying a double
major up to her last semester, she is an authority in both History and English. She
has the honor of leading her class — the largest in E. N. C.'s history — in the matter of
scholarship. We who know her great devotion to study are heartily glad that she has
this reward and we know beyond doubt that her persistent personality will find expres-
sion in a great work.

You bear a somewhat quiet mien, as befits the president of the Student Council,
but underlying your sobriety is a sly humor which belies your methodical mind.
Your triendliness is bestowed without partiality on all you meet and your out-
standing trait, to us at least, is brotherliness. You do not walk your way alone, but
stop to help some other who may be toiling beneath a heavy load.
We will miss your cheery "Hello" on the walks and in the halls of E. N. C, but
we are certain that your steady perseverance will win you a place in the world that
will make us proud to say we were your schoolmates.

One determined shake of Gertrude's brown curls either
in merriment or earnestness and you were convinced that
there was a girl of action. And just that she is. She laughs
heartily, speaks decisively, and acts promptly. She is a positive necessity to her Lit-
erary Society, a valuable asset to her class, and a worthy rival on the athletic floor.
It is her willingness to work and the unsparing demands she makes on herself which
has made it necessary for her to reduce her schedule this year and remain at E. N. C.
for another semester.
As a General Superintendent's daughter, Gertrude has done justice to her familv
name, but more than that she has made us love her for herself. There is as much fun
as work in Gertrude's nature and she is liked for both. She leaves at E. N. C. a host
of friends and well-wishers.

A man of few words, but who, when he does speak, says a great many things in
a very short time, "Art'" has come to be known at E. N. C. for his zeal for knowledge.
His remarkable endurance through nights and days of study without sleep remains a
mystery to those who know him. But "Art" seems to enjoy living in spite of this
dogged adherence to his work. We like to see him break into unrestrained merriment
and release his usually concealed personality. "Art" is leaving E. N. C. with an un-
usual record, having completed his entire course in three years and having earned
almost all his expenses; in addition, he is Salutatorian of his class. He is making
application for a splendid high school position, and we have no doubt but that he
will fill it ably.

Never mind, Marion — blushing is said to be a forgotten art and you certainly
have made your contribution toward preserving the culture of the past generations.
Such modesty is really quite an accomplishment in this modern twentieth century.
But we can never forgive Marion for being such a tyrant in the library. Had it not
been for that merry twinkle in her eye some of us might have been almost afraid of
her. Jolly good humor and a friendly disposition have made her a great favorite in
dormitory and classroom, and we were always able to count on Marion when there was
work to be done. She participated in every phase of her college life with that same
eager interest, regardless of whether it involved study, sports, or Christian activity.

The fairies were kind to you, "Dick." They gave you imagination, coupled with
sly humor and generously sprinkled you with kindliness and a fine sense of honor.
You've lighted many an otherwise dull hour, and, to paraphrase a well known
quotation, "if mischief's done can Dick be far behind?" Though you may be away,
some of your personality will linger on the campus, and if in the purple twilight we
should faintly see a misty form listening to the barking of the dogwood, I'm sure that
we would recognize that misty shade to be one of your cast off personalities.
Deep ieelings are hard to express in lifeless words, and we who love you find it
hard to tell you what we would. All we can say is that you are a Christian gentleman
who carries high the ideals of E. N. C. May God bless you richly.

Honor Society '31.
Jane is such a quiet, unassuming sort of a person that one scarcely knows she is
around, and yet she has filled a large place among us. She takes nothing for granted —
not even herself. She has a charming personality, and there is a certain sweet sim-
plicity which characterizes both her words and her manner. We feel that Jane, in her
pursuit of knowledge, has also discovered true wisdom and understanding. The faith-
fulness with which Jane gives her testimony has been a source of great inspiration to
each one of us. We are sure that she will make an ideal minister's wife.

What, oh, what will E. N. C. be like without Buster? Who will tease us, and
torment us, and make us laugh even though we are tired? No one ever saw Buster
when he was looking bored with life, and no one ever found life anything but interest-
ing when he was around. Moreover, we are still wondering where Buster got all his
information. We are still wondering if he really knew as much about us as he pre-
tended to know. He always looked so very wise when he declared "You wouldn't
want me to say it" that we began to feel like culprits in spite of ourselves. How in the
woi Id Buster ever managed to play so many pranks and yet make such high grades is
past finding out.

Fun-loving, faithful, attractive Katherine! Hers is a personality truly individual.
She has a mind of her own, a cheery disposition, and a certain air of steadiness in her
behavior. With what dignified capability she can conduct her Latin class; yet the next
moment she is out on the steps laughing and teasing like one of her own Academy
students. But she is far from careless. All through her college years she has held
places of responsibility and carried out each duty with skillful efficiency. In studies,
too, her earnest effort and application have produced high scholarship. But in the
midst of it all she has always found time to indulge her enthusiasm for sports and a
good time — ice-skating particularly. And as the very basis of her character, Kather-
ine has a firmness which will carry her safely and successfully through the future.

"Scotty" is our philosopher. He is not over-talkative in his classes, but when all
the rest have argued blindly and unaffectively for some time, he very casually inserts
his quiet, "Er — it seems to me — " into a pause and in a single concise sentence, sums
up the entire argument so clearly and effectively that we wonder how we ever could
have failed to see it before.
Scotty's genial good humor makes him seem perpetually young, and it is hard
to consider him as a married man; yet such is the case, and we should judge he is
making a very good success, considering the smiles that Mary seems to wear most of

When Olive came to us from Cleveland Bible Institute two years ago, we did
not realize all that we had acquired. Her quiet, unassuming ways did not seem
destined to raise a ripple in the current of school life; but we soon found that we
were mistaken. Olive is a leader in the true sense of the word, and one whom we
need not fear to follow, for her sincere, spirit-filled life can be safely trusted not to
lead us into dangerous by-paths.
Although a "housewife," Olive always found time to take part in sports and
other school activities, and her voice in chorus, in our girls' quartette, and in solos
has been an inspiration to many of us; for always, we knew that she sang "from the
fullness of her heart."
It is easy to predict success for Olive as a preacher's wife, for she enters whole-
heartedly into any undertaking, and this vocation is one particularly congenial to her.

Henry, or "Hank," is our business man. Have you never chanced to meet him as
he dashed by, with every nerve in his body alert, every muscle tense, and that pre-
occupied look in his eye? "Hank" is always in motion, and what is even more re-
markable, he has a surprising faculty of setting other people in motion, too. But
who dares to say that he has not the secret of true efficiency? We feel that this very
spirit of aggressiveness is sure to be a tremendous asset to Henry as he enters the min-
istry. Henry majored in Psychology while he was at E. N. C, and we are all ready to
testify that he certainly put his knowledge of the subject into practical use.
MABEL ELIZABETH TURNEY
Sinclairville, N. Y.
A.B. — Theology
'Other hope had she none, no wish in life,
But to follow humbly the sacred feet of her master.
Mabel is really ahead of the rest of us in education because she has had a normal
school training as well as her college work. She taught the sub-preparatory depart-
ment here at E. N. C. the first year she came, besides carrying a heavy course in col-
lege work. We have always admired Mabel for her sincerity and her determination to
hold to her convictions regardless of what it might cost her. Her steadfastness in
facing the many spiritual battles that have come to her during her three years here,
will, we are certain, be a great help to her in her chosen field of Christian service.

"Meek and mild, but a true friend to a//."
If you only know Glorine as she goes about the campus with her reserved and
studious manner, then you don't know her. True, she recites ably in low- well-modu-
lated tones, seldom parts with a book, and takes advantage of all the library hours.
The way she has carried her very heavy course is indeed admirable. But she came to
us here at E. N. C. only this year, and perhaps you haven't heard her fling out some
saucy remark or seen her tease some classmate in a most unruly fashion! There is a
modest type of gayety which occasionally crops out from beneath usually lady-like
behavior. Perhaps the latter quality was acquired when she taught school out in
Iowa. At any rate, we are sure that with her perseverance and serious purpose she is
well fitted to teach English as she has chosen to do.

Mr. Paramanadam comes to us from Pasadena, California, where he completed

straight from his native India. We have tried hard to make Mr. Paramanadam feel
at home in America, but it is not at all difficult to see that his heart is in his home
land. We have all enjoyed the missionary chapel talks which he has given us from
time to time, and we have watched with sympathy and appreciation as his eyes lighted

Edna goes briskly about her own business, letting few people know what is be-
hind the student we see in the class room. That student is reliable, conscientious,
well-poised; one whom the professor can count on. Nothing seems to distract her or
disturb the evenness of her mind. When she recites with her pleasant voice and well-
chosen words, we respect her knowledge. Yet she displays another side of her nature
in her freer hours. She is friendly in spite of her reserve, and at times — would you
believe it — almost reckless in her humor. Always alert, always busy, equipped with
just those abilities which will make her a successful teacher. As she goes out to take
up her profession, we wish her the best success.

Conscientious — perhaps that one word characterizes Willis as no other word could.
He is a conscientious student, and a conscientious Christian. To those who are not
particularly well acquainted with him he may appear dignified and reserved, but
frequently he surprises us all with an unexpected flash of dry humor which is all his
own. He is always quick to champion the cause of anyone who happens to be in
need, and his sympathies are usually enlisted on the side of the loser. Both Mr.
Weaver and his wife are fine singers, and they expect to enter the ministry together,

Who would guess from Robin's quiet, serene bearing in the library that so
much originality and sparkling wit was bubbling just beneath the surface? How-
ever, those of us who have been with her in classes have learned to approach any
clash of opinions warily, for her emphatic statements are generally so cleverly spoken
that we feel discomforted even though reason (and logic) may be on our side.
In writing, as in class discussion, Robin expresses exactly what she thinks, in
no uncertain terms. And since she seems a bit undecided as to her future we would
suggest that as a familiar essayist she would supply a long-needed tonic to American
Robin enjoys her studies but is not at all a book worm. You will find her on
the basketball floor playing or in the sidelines cheering, with the same vivacity and

To all outward appearances the Junior Class functions chiefly as a useful back-
ground for the Seniors. We do not object to this characterization for we are glad to
assist in maintaining the Seniors in the important position which is rightfully theirs.
We do, however, believe that there are other phases of school life to which we, as
individual members of the Junior Class, have lent our best efforts.
When we entered E. N. C. three years ago, we earned the reputation of being
essentially spiritual. One of the greatest challenges which we have faced and ac-
cepted in our school life has been to live up to this reputation, for we feel that 'having
sought first the kingdom of God' we can more earnestly and sincerely use 'all those
things which shall be added unto us' in the building of character and the service of
our Alma Mater.

Our Freshman days are over; their newness and excitement has subsided into the
quiet plodding of our Sophomore year. College life is no longer an experiment but
an all-too-vivid reality. We have been consigned by tradition, it seems, to a period
of retreat from society life, presumably for the purpose of promoting our search for
knowledge! But we have had a little bit of fun in our class program in spite of
everything. We attempted to have a sleigh ride in the early winter, but while our
plans did not materialize we had an exciting evening long to be rememberted. On
Senior Day, although our part was largely one of assisting the Juniors in prepara-
tion for the banquet, we managed to get our share of the excitement. Numerous other
events, of greater or lesser importance, have all combined to make this year unusually
active from a Sophomore's viewpoint. Now we are looking forward to the future
when we shall bear the honorable title of "Juniors."

We have come to the closing days of our Freshman year at E. N. C. It seems
hut a short while since we entered college last September, but in the brief time we
have been here we have come to love the halls of E. N. C, and the winding paths
which twist 'neath arching trees and among flowering shrubs.
We have come to know and love our professors and college mates, ajnd during
this year have made friendships which will ever enrich our lives.
We have seen the fires of autumn burst into mighty conflagrations on the campus.
We have seen them quenched by winter's chilling snows, which have in turn given way
before the warm spring rains; and now we see the budding trees bloom forth with life
In this season of new life, when all the earth seems filled with the joy of living,
may we, too, as a class reach forth, as do the flowers toward the sun, and grasp the
richer, deeper life which God has for us. May each one of us individually seek to
find the place which God has planned for us, and press onward to a life of victory
through our Lord.

any of the highest and most approved scholastic standards the college main-

The training of ministers and missionaries for the church of tomorrow is one
of the most important aspects of the work of Eastern Nazarene College. The de-
mands of the twentieth century upon ministers are such as require a thorough
knowledge of the Bible plus an understanding of history, psychology, and science.
The theological department offers a thorough and competent avenue in which
to train our best for the Master. Under the guidance of Professor E. E. Angell, who
in both class and pulpit earnestly contends for the Truth, we learn to discern truth
from error, to appreciate wisdom, and to propagate the only saving Gospel.

Away from the noisy city,
Away from the cares of life,
I wandered through the pastures,
Where my soul could take delight.
I heard the brooklet trickle
O'er the pebbles smooth and cold;
Then a love for natural beauty
O'er my spirit gently rolled.
There was only beauty about me;
There was plenty of air to breathe;
I had freedom in its fullness,
As I walked among the trees.
Nature spoke to me in whispers,
As I sat low at her feet:
' 'Tis the loving God of heaven
Who maketh all things complete.
"He harmonizes colors;
He puts music in the air,
Love governs all of nature,
And we find true beauty there."
The Bridge Builder
"An old man going a lone highway
Came at the evening cold and gray
To a chasm vast and deep and wide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
The sudden stream had no fears for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side,
And built a bridge to span the tide.
'Old man,' said a fellow pilgrim near,
'You are wasting your time with building here,
You never again will pass this way.
Your journey will end with the closing day.
You have crossed the chasm deep and wide,
Why build you this bridge at evening tide?'
The builder lifted his old gray head.
'Good friend, in the way that I've come,' he said,
'There followeth after me today
A Youth whose feet must pass this way.
This stream that has been as naught to me
To the fair-haired youth might a pitfall be.
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim,
Good friend, I am building the bridge for him'."

A stimulating phase of life at Eastern Nazarene College is participation in the
activities of either the Oxford or the Nobel Literary Society. The combined member-
ship of these organizations represents all of the students, and between them there is
an endeavor to maintain an equality of numbers and talents.
The societies were organized in the school year of 1931-1932, being evolved
indirectly from the former Athenian and Breseean Literary Societies, and their object
is to maintain a vital interest in the finer, cultural, side of life, and the revelation and
development of latent and hidden talents.
During the school year each society presents three public programs which strive
to feature the best in literature and music, in fields both religious and classical. Often
the literary phase is the offering of original work on the part of our own students.
There is a spirit of keen competition; judges from the faculty reckon the credit
points for each society program, and for the society's yearly work. This competition
The Historical Society
The world of today is composed of a community of nations whose economic
interests are almost identical. The individual of each nation must, therefore, have a
knowledge of international events and an understanding of their influence on the
economic conditions of his country. For the close relationship of one nation with
another demands of each citizen tolerance and an unbiased mind which, freed from
prejudice, can form, sound judgments and accurate opinions of international events.
The Historical Society, the membership to which is open to all students fulfilling
the college requirements for history, meets bi-weekly. In the meeting, the members
of the society and other interested students, hoping to cultivate an international mind,
study and discuss contemporary events of significance in world history. Besides hav-
ing its scheduled meetings, the society conducts an annual outing to local points of
historical value. This year the group followed the route of Paul Revere's ride from
Lexington and Concord, and visited Sudbury and Salem. And in the spring the
society gives, in the Recreation Rooms, an annual tea in honor of the faculty.
The organization is affiliated with the Carnegie Endowment for International
Peace, and is helped in the study of current history by receiving from the Carnegie
Endowment, A Fortnightly Summary of International Events. The League of Nations
Chronicle, Geneva, The Monthly Summary of the League of Nations, and The Inter-
national Labor Review. Each semester the Carnegie Endowment also sends the society
selected books on current issues. These books and periodicals are placed* in the
library and are at the disposal of anyone interested in using them.
The Green Book
The Green Book. To anyone who has been a college freshman, there is wrapped
up in these three words a multitude of reactions and suggestions. Maybe it is a clever
theme of a high school experience, or perhaps it is a beautiful bit of description that
flashes into the mind. More often it is a funny incident preserved in the humor section.
To the staffs who have produced their respective Green Books, come other memo-
ries. The vivid recollection of hours spent in an effort to capture an inspiration or
original idea; weary nights of typing and art work; and above all, the exhaustive
search for fresh jokes.
To students who have not yet come to college the Green Book is an ethereal
something, but once registered in College Rhetoric, they will find that it is a real and
integral part of every Freshman's school life.
And to all who have enjoyed looking at a Green Book, I think that they will
agree that it is indeed refreshing in this highly organized machine age to find a vestige
of the time when books were produced and not "turned out" by a feelingless machine.
E. N. C. is a personality. For all the factors are there: a material external,
controlled by intelligence, balanced by character and moved by purpose. A college
that is truly Christian has all of these remarkably unified.
The buildings, however, are not the college. First comes years of prepara-
tion for teachers and administrative officers, resulting in trained intelligence and
strong Christian character. And there must be a purpose for its existence. Over
thirty years ago the founders of E. N. C. saw a college which should, year after year,
employ Christ-like teachers and administrative officers. This purpose has fortified
E. N. C. against the evils to which other colleges have succumbed.
But a personality will wither and die without contact with other personalities,
and a college is nothing without students. Trained intelligence, spiritual purpose,
and Christian character are to be found in the trustees and faculty of E. N. C. They
are the best to be found. But without students whose purpose is the source, the
vision of the founders is still a vision, and the results of years of labor become ashes.
In this sense, the everyday lives of present and former students complete the per-
sonality of E. N. C, and are living proof of the effectual power of the blood

The influence of Eastern Nazarene College lives beyond four years of training
for life. We came to her — fresh, vigorous youth — impatient to be through with
school and out in the world, meeting great men and doing great deeds. E. N. C.
received us openly, softening over the course of four years, our impetuosity,
and teaching us the restraining facts of true living. She did not stifle the urge
of youth to progress, but rather moderated it with the mature rein of man-
hood and womanhood. Her professors inspired in us, by their noble example and
sacrifice, the desire to emulate them in true living, and an unshakable faith in a
loving Father. Briefly, we have learned here the real meaning of life, meditation,
As Gibbon wrote, "From the portico the Roman citizens learned to live, to
reason, and to die," so The Portico endeavors to afford a glimpse of us who are
here learning "to live, to reason, and to die." As this book goes out to prospective
students, to a faithful constituency, and a devoted Alumni, we pray God's blessing
on it. May it help you to realize anew the purpose and obligation of Eastern
Nazarene College, and, realizing, may you pledge her once more your fullest interest
and support. If we, as the Staff of The Portico, and representing our student body,
can assure ourselves of this, we shall feel more than repaid for our struggle against
difficulties and discouragements.
Expression is man's most effective and sincere means of interpretation. Its
fundamental element is the revelation of his inner emotional nature through the
physical organism. As Dr. Curry says, "All true expression is from within out-
ward." The thoughts, the inward emotions of the soul must and will find a means
of expression; and it is these genuine revelations of an honest, sincere man which
prevail to move and stir his fellows.
The Expression Department at E. N. C. endeavors to show its students this
vision of the power and privileges of true expression. It acknowledges and teaches
its students that the task of expression is, then, to train the mind and body — indeed
the whole physical entity — to feel intensely, to glimpse the invisible, and to interpret
truly his mental experiences and character.
"All true art is self-expression, and all noble self-expression is art."

The soundness of an investment is determined by the security and the
interest or dividend which is received by the investor. Recently a man who
was at one time reputed to be wealthy made the statement that of all his
investments, none proved as good as an annuity bond he held of a religious
institution. Through the so-called depression he stated he had received
his interest promptly and it was one of a very few of all his investments
from which he was able to do so.
An Annuity Bond provides you with a fixed income during life. The
money is permanently invested and will continue to do good for many,
many years. You will have a safe investment and a dependable income.
Educational institutions are dependent upon an Endowment Fund or
gifts to supplement the regular income. We do not have an endowment
fund but our LIVING ENDOWMENT FUND makes it possible for a per-
son to give a certain amount per month, which is equivalent to interest
which the college would receive if it had the principal sum invested. This
Fund has proven a blessing to the college during the past years.
Where could you make a gift that would be of more lasting benefit
than to give to an institution whose objective is the training and education
of young men and women for the work of pastors, evangelists, missionaries,
Christian workers and teachers? Indeed this is not only wise giving, but
it is a gift that will truly reap an abundant harvest.
League of Evangelical Students
On February 13, 1934 the Evangelistic Association voted to disband and to re-
organize as a chapter of the League of Evangelical Students, a nation-wide grouping
of evangelical Christian students, banded together to witness for Christ on the cam-
puses of American colleges and universities.
Due to a peculiar situation at E. N. C. the actual League membership is limited,
but we have, affiliated with and supporting our work, students whom we call "asso-
Our work this year has been in a Mission, in the local Church, and in churches
round about. Thus we have opportunities for preachers, singers, and Christian work-
ers to gain first-hand experience in actual service. New Testaments and Gospels have
also been distributed to be used during the summer. Our advisor, Professor Garri-
son, has given us helpful suggestions in carrying out Christian work.
Under God's leadership we shall go forward, lifting the standard of Christian

"The end of Art is not to astonish but to move — " to move what? Not only the
emotions, but to move mankind out into new fields of endeavor; to move him toward
the higher and more refined things of life. Today, if an individual is not interested
in the finer things of culture, he is a misfit. Opportunities to improve one's self in
the various branches of the Arts are almost without number. Since participation is
always more beneficial than mere observation, Eastern Nazarene College urges all
who possibly can, to enroll in the Fine Arts Department. The interest in this field
has been greatly increased this year, as shown by the enrollment in the various
courses; but a further advance is looked for next year.
At Eastern Nazarene College, the aim of the Fine Arts Department is not simply
to train students to become skilled performers in their special field, but to inspire
that student to realize that he has before him the opportunity to use his trained artis-
tic faculties in the Master's use — to uplift humanity.
The Orchestra has just closed a blessed year. It has been inspiring to watch the
growth and development of this group and sense in them and their work that under-
tone of deep spirituality. Truly this has been a year of broadening vision when each
musician has come to realize that his talents belong to God and must be developed to
full capacity for His Glory.
Our conductor has done most commendable work this past year contributing far
more than cold, mechanical instruction. The whole-hearted way in which he has con-
secrated his gift to God has been a driving force in each of our lives.
This year the Orchestra has entertained at one concert, and also at various school
functions and daily chapel services. Their work has been made up of studies from
the Great Classical Masters, some of the old hymns of the Church, and lighter num-
Young Women's Athletic Association
The need of keeping fit physically as well as mentally to insure success is a sub-
ject of strong emphasis. In view of this fact, our Young Women's Athletic Associa-
tion proposes to afford healthful exercise by such sports as tennis in the spring and
fall, ice skating and basketball in the winter months.
Besides athletics, the Y. W. A. A. takes an active part in other social activities
of the school. In the autumn the association gave a Hallowe'en party to the Y. M.
A. A., which everyone agrees was a success. To the clanking of chains and the groans
of ghosts, the guests felt their way through a narrow passage into a maze which
finally led to the gym where laughter and merriment could be heard under a line of
gay balloons hung from the ceiling. Games and pumpkin pie contributed to the hap-
piness of those present, while the many colored balloons furnished amusement for
the young men who were well supplied with pins.
As one of the departments in a character building institution, our aim of fine
sportsmanship and good will towards one another is being realized.
